Scotsman.com News - UK - Mark Thatcher 'planned to relocate to Texas'

This bizarre story will receive international attention because of the tremendous oil reserves and increasing production in Equatorial Guinea. If this tiny country, apparently run by a brutal despot and his clan, is receiving 500 million British pounds per month from it oil sales, it is ripe for corruption, intrigue and coup attempts.

As this situation demonstrates, the world's oil supply is in the hands of many extraordinarily fragile regimes.

This is a terrorist's delight to exploit.
